FormatDateTime

In Regional Setting - Date, I'm using format like this :
     mm/dd/yy

In my program I'm using FormatDateTime function like this :

const
  MyDate = '27/11/1998';

begin
  Label1.Caption := FormatDateTime('dddd dd mmmm yyyy',StrToDate(MyDate));
end;

If I run this program, I found error !
But if I change Date in Regional Setting like this :
     dd/mm/yy

I don't found error !

What is the function FormatDateTime if this function still using Windows's date system ?

I don't think this error is due to formatDateTime. It is the StrToDate function that cause the error because StrToDate use the ShortDateFormat.
One way to solve your problem is to set
ShortDateFormat := 'mm/dd/yy' (or other format as you like)
